BRADLEY COUNTY, TN (WRCB) –
Bradley Central High School is under fire for a prayer delivered over the loudspeaker before a football game.
An employee of the school sent video of the prayer to the Freedom From Religion Foundation.
The Freedom From Religion Foundation says the district must take immediate action to end the practice of prayer at school sponsored events.
This comes after an employee filed a complaint with the foundation, saying an announcer prayed over the loudspeaker during an October 13th football game at Bradley Central High School.
Channel 3 obtained video of that prayer.
You can can hear the announcer instruct everyone in the crowd to rise and ask that they remove their hats for the prayer. Then you can hear the prayer that the Freedom From Religion Foundation says was led by a student.
And there was Anna a prophetess, a daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was of a great age and had lived with her husband seven years from her virginity. And she was a widow of about eighty-four years of age who did not depart from the temple, but served God with fasting and prayer night and day. Coming at that moment she gave thanks to the Lord and spoke of Him to all those who looked for the redemption of Jerusalem (Luke 2:36-38).
